The guiding philosophy at Love Yoga Massage can be summed up in two words: "No Om." Here, fitness, stretching, and massage carry more weight than getting zen. The studio's huge list of classes is categorized in groups such as Hot Yoga, Flow Yoga, and Zumba. In addition to yoga classes, Love Yoga offers Thai yoga therapy, which combines traditional Thai massage with Western medicine and massage practices.
Seven days a week, the therapists at May's Foot Reflexology massage specific points on clients' feet, stimulating their nervous systems to boost overall health. The treatment can help the body recover from strain and stress, improve sleep quality, and even prevent issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and a resurfacing childhood fear of "This Little Piggy." For female clients, the therapists include a free upgrade to massage lotion infused with shea butter, jojoba oil, and other skin-softening ingredients.
Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who’s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that’s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
The team at True Beauty Aesthetics specializes in noninvasive procedures, from laser hair-removal and elos skin-tightening treatments to photofacials and Botox injections. Consultations precede treatments, so clients have a chance to discuss their envisioned results and warn the staff of any allergies to hearing the word “laser.”
Dr. Dan Vasile oversees Skin Envy's roster of aesthetic experts, who restore faces to factory settings with a variety of med-spa services. The LimeLight photofacial begins with a consultation that fields any questions about the procedure, possible effects, and reasons why bad things happen to good faces. The 30-minute photofacial then uses Intense Pulsed Light to raise hyperpigmentation and sun damage to the surface of the skin, where it will eventually flake off naturally. The precisely calibrated beams of light also target age spots and acne scars and render complexions smooth and bright. Skin Envy's technicians try to keep the treatment as comfortable as possible and are available for posttreatment questions and complexion-soothing bedtime stories afterward.
